Professor Skies
Being borrowed

Selina was not quite all caught up with her paperwork, but she was on top of it enough to dedicate this evening to her own interests, and had outstanding letters from her oldest daughter and her niece to reply to. She was part way through the reply to Rosie, her niece, when there was a knock on the door. Selina swept the letters into her top drawer, carefully laying the one she’d been working on on top so that the ink could dry.

“Hello,” she said, as she opened the door, scanning down until her eye’s met her student’s. It turned out to be Wu. Whilst she wasn’t the girl’s Head of House, she knew her quite well from the study support group, so wasn’t terribly surprised to find her showing up in her office. The study group could be quite busy, and Wu wasn’t exactly one to speak up, so perhaps she had some issue with her homework, and hadn’t found it possible to voice this during the study session.

“Come in and have a seat,” Selina smiled, noting with concern that the girl looked rather tired, and trying to think whether this had been the case in their last study session too… Whether this was a one off sleepless night or one of many… The trouble was that between children setting their own bedtimes, teenagers being dragged out of bed early, and students who were just plain bored, yawning was not an unusual occurrence in class, and she found it hard to pinpoint whether she had noticed this particular behaviour in Wu over the last week. She made a note to keep an eye on her though, if she didn’t bring it up herself now. “How can I help you?” she asked.

OOC - for future reference, it is generally not considered God-modding to include a phrase such as ‘Once she was invited in….’ so you can have the character enter the office and get on with explaining why they’re there.

        Wu liked Professor Skies. She was a nice woman who was quite bright but never made Wu feel dumb. She made her feel cared for in a way that was completely new. Not to say that her parents did not care ... more

          One thing Selina had learnt over the years was to hold her tongue. She was a chatterer by nature and was keen to jump in with ideas as soon as Wu started speaking. But she needed to give the girl... more
